Completion of training in Iraq

Over the last three years, 30 trauma pedagogues* in Kurdistan-Iraq have been trained in emergency and trauma pedagogy. The necessary knowledge was imparted in four training blocks and was now concluded with an examination in the week from 24 to 31 July. We are glad that all candidates have passed their exams and can now train local experts independently.
The examination consisted of both practical and theoretical parts: A theoretical presentation was given, a children's meeting and a practical part was completed. In individual debriefings, each individual was given feedback by the international team of emergency education and our staff in the country office.
The closing ceremony took place on 01.08. at the ZEVA-Center in Dohuk. In addition to the 30 trauma educators*, Minka and Martin Straube, three representatives* of GIZ GmbH (German Society for International Cooperation), our regional correspondent Dr. Nesreen Barwari and Jiyan Mostafa, the deputy head of DoLSA (Department of Labor and Social Affairs) were present.
